Hazards Planning Center
Planning Information Exchange
With a new award agreement granted by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the successful Planning Information Exchange (PIE) webinar series has been extended for two additional years, starting October 1, 2016. APA will continue to act as the lead in an agreement with FEMA, and ASFPM as a partner. The quarterly webinars will continue to revolve around four central themes:
- The information exchange focuses on all hazards.
- The information exchange focuses primarily on mitigation planning but also its connections with recovery planning and preparedness.
- APA and ASFPM act as co-conveners of all planning exchange webinars. This means that both organizations will use their respective web-based meeting platforms to set up, register, drive, facilitate, record, and provide technical support for all webinar meetings.
- Planning exchange hosts select topics and commit to moderate, present, and lead the planning exchange webinars.
